GHOST WATCH: Ghostly goings on at Coombe?

A GHOSTLY outline of a horse appears to leap off the stage, while another strange object seems to be walking down the stairs.

This eerie picture was captured at the 40th anniversary celebrations of medieval banquets at Coombe Abbey on Friday night last week.

Ginny Hunter, advertising manager at the Advertiser, was one of the guests at the special event - and was surprised by the image.

She said: “It wasn’t until the next day I noticed on the pictures on my camera what looks like a horse’s stirrup and a lady walking down the stairs.”

The pictures were taken in the banqueting hall which used to be the stables in the abbey, which dates back to the 12th century.

Guests at the celebrations enjoyed a drinks reception, a swordfight re-enactment, dinner, entertainment and a disco.

Medieval banquets were first held at the historic venue in 1971.
